Which Home Improvements Add The Most Value To Your House?
Home renovations are a tried and tested way in which homeowners can add value to their home. Some ways are more costly than others. Home improvements can run from a couple of hundred to thousands of pounds, so choosing the best ones to get the greatest return on investment could make or break your homes’ selling point. In this article we’ll be examining the different ways you can add value to your home through renovations.
Having a fully comprehensive, working central heating system is highly desirable for many buyers. Especially with Britain’s weather, central heating has become a necessity for home owners, with over 95% of domestic properties now fitted with a central heating system. It is highly undesirable for a home to have a dated central heating system as this will be a costly job for the new homeowners to take on. Whilst you update your heating system, we also recommend sealing any draughts around doors and windows, as well as adding extra insulation in the loft so the house can retain heat more effectively.
Although not everyone’s first thought when deciding on what home improvement to pursue, new windows can take the outside of the home from looking shabby to smart in no time. New windows can also increase a homes’ energy efficiency by insulating the home more readily, saving on heating bills in the long term. We highly recommend having double glazing fitted throughout the whole house, as single glazed windows aren’t as efficient and you can really feel the difference in temperature between the two.
A new bathroom will increase the value of your property, and is also possible on a budget by keeping the layout the same and just updating the material items such as the bath and shower screens, or installing new mirrors, which will give the bathroom a modernised, larger look.
A kitchen renovation can completely transform the whole home, adding a central living space and up to 120% recoup on investment. The only rules surrounding a kitchen is to keep in it line with the rest of the house. An excessive extravagant kitchen in a traditionally decorated home will not look cohesive to buyers. The more work a house needs the less appealing it will be to buyers, but it also needs to look like a blank canvas, so people can more easily visualise themselves living there.
Painting is one of the cheapest ways of increasing your homes value and desirability. Repainting your home with a clean, neutral colour gives a fresh and new feeling to your home, giving the illusion the property is newer than it is. Furthermore, a neutral colour palette will give the illusion it is more spacious and the rooms are lighter.
